Poem 97

on evolution in the workplace
I am human error waiting to happen
from the moment I join the heavily caffeinated
at a quarter till nine. Soaking, boiling, burrowing,
Click click swhip. Click click swhip
Catastrophe strikes at nine-fifty-seven
Pause to tip the chilling coffee, trash-bun, sigh
Begin Message Here. Spell Check. Submit.
Sloth sounds, humming birds. Dormant we make jungle noises,
Click click swhip. Click click swhip
Click click spurr. Click click spurr.
AH BLAST! Miscommunication, ugly flanges ugly verbs.
Digits widgets, fidgets, crickets strum keyboard tongues,
Speak sweetly to me your professional pillow talk,
How lovely your syntax, black on white like a bumble-bee
Yellow my disappointment.
Click click spurr. Click click spurr.
Predator, razor teeth, consider carefully your reply,
Hold still your snarling saber, we are watching you with
Cookie-cameras, ISN ISN isn’t it better we have the
Word wide webbing to calm your canines?
Ahhh yes, yes indeed.
